Rockstar Rick James asks the A-team to help a friend and colleague of his, C.J. Mack, who is about to be released from Rockford State Penitentiary after ten years for dozing off in his Maserati causing a fatal accident, as he stopped communicating. They are just in time to prevent him being killed by the dressed-up prisoners and real guard Quint who want him to tell the hiding place inside for the tapes he made of their hold-ups while on work details outside. It all goes to easy, and indeed two-faced prison warden Crichton gets his man Quint out and decides to eliminate C.J.- so the team gets Rick James and several major stars, including Lionel Richie, to offer doing a rock benefit no politician dares turn down, so they can get in as crewmen...
